Holidays in Lefkas present a verdant island of hills and mountains covered in fir and pine forests, lush olive groves and vineyards. Lefkas has resisted the influx of mass tourism to a greater extent than some of the other Greek island holidays. This means Lefkas holidays enjoy much of the old world charm of Lefkas, which mirrors the island's own natural beauty.
The locals are still keen to wear traditional Greek attire, which adds to the atmosphere. Some of the resorts on the east coast such as Lygia, Nikiana, Perigiali and Nidri are nestled in quiet bays with shingle beaches washed by very calm, clear water. Lefkas holidays are popular with people who enjoy the great outdoors. There's some beautiful scenery in the area with magnificent views from the blossom-covered hillsides down to the sea below. Sailing is a popular pursuit of many people on the island and Lefkas plays host to an annual regatta in late September when boats from all over the med converge to race one another.There are some challenging bike trails to confront towards the centre of Lefkas, which are probably best left to those who are comfortable with an uphill struggle. The quiet back roads around the coastal towns present an equally scenic encounter with the natural splendour of Lefkas, but with less of a physical challenge. A must-see on holiday in Lefkas, particularly in late springtime, is the beautiful Vafkeri waterfall around the Geni Peninsula. Sporty types should head south to the vassiliki resort to take advantage of the superb surfing conditions that attract large numbers of windsurfers in the warm summer months.
